Excitement around the 2013 MLS SuperDraft is building in Indianapolis and MLS W.O.R.K.S. took a few of the draftees to Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health today. Walker Zimmerman, Andrew Farrell and Eriq Zavaleta visited with patients and families at the hospital and signed MLS W.O.R.K.S. t-shirts and posed for photos. The visit was a great opportunity for these future MLS players to give back to the Indianapolis community prior to the MLS SuperDraft tomorrow.

Don't miss your chance to watch the SuperDraft live tomorrow on MLSsoccer.com, ESPN3, ESPNFC and YouTube to find out which MLS club these draftees will end up playing for.
